It turned out to be a BEAUTIFUL day for Leah and Jesse’s wedding at The Cedar Post Barn in Albany, LA!! Rain was in the forecast, however, it waited right until the last minute of the day! Which was perfect because it resulted in the most romantic “kissing in the rain’ shot with the beautiful venue in the background (Scroll down to see it)! It was the most perfect ending to their day!
I walked in the venue and hair and makeup was basically already done! I started photographing some details and couldn’t help but feel so relaxed as this wedding was completely stress free! It was definitely evident that it was stress free for the girls as they were just hanging out in the barn watching basketball! Haha! I believe Leah and I planned out the day so well beforehand that things just fell right into place!
During the ceremony, not only the bride and groom exchanged rings but Leah also had a ring for Jesse’s son Cole as he was becoming a very special part of her life as well! It was the sweetest thing ever and he had the biggest smile on his face!
A few portraits later, Cole kicked off the reception with some awesome dance moves! This kid LOVED to dance! Leah and Jesse shared “literally’ their first dance ever!! It was amazing and I was so happy to witness and capture such a special moment between them!! What came next I am pretty sure had the whole room in tears…..including me for sure! Unfortunately Leah’s father passed several years ago. Therefore, the people near and dear to her stepped in to dance with her to honor his memory. He was there in spirit dancing with her through her sweet mom and siblings! It was truly a moment to remember and I feel so honored to have captured it for her! Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Yarbrough!!
